Did you know that, while your product may support Suite-B, not every implemented service may actually have the required support?

Getting ready for an ISO based FIPS Next – Certifications Expert

Requiring the user to change these credentials will not only be necessary to validate against FIPS Next but is a good security practice. The CMVP has kso added a section to its website to address its consideration.

This value is not only derived by the very real product improvements that are realized by certifying a Read More…. There are, however, several requirements that could be considered not only because they will be required, but, they are also just good security practices.

If vendors are caught off guard, it will be very painful to complete their next FIPS validation after the transition. FIPS allows any password complexity requirement to be enforced procedurally.


[cabfpub] FIPS 140-3 will be ISO/IEC 19790

Now is the time to add minimum complexity rules to your software. If you are not already performing that type of testing, now is a good time to start.

Automated Security Diagnostic Testing: At minimum, even if it does not become part of FIPS Next, you will prevent the dreaded one-character password.

Here are a few suggestions a product vendor may wish to consider to get a head start on an ISO Not only will you be meeting the new validation requirements, but, you may just identify and prevent a vulnerability from getting out into the field.

If you provide default authentication data to initially access your product, ISO Compliance based testing and certification have received bad rap over the years as being checkbox security or even worse having no security impact. What does it mean and what are you going to do? However, the transition plan is not finalized the CMVP could potentially even go a completely different direction and it would not be prudent to completely overhaul code and design to meet the ISO requirements.

Here at Acumen 91790 we are excited to begin our journey in the world of certification testing as an independent lab. However, in doing a deep dive into the requirements, one finds that there are numerous changes that will directly affect every cryptographic module that has ever been validated.


Have you ever run into this scenario? Default credentials are one of the more common ways a system in operation is compromised. In this iex our genesis of starting Acumen might well have been called Read More…. For many vendors, it makes sense to consider getting a head start into integrating the new functionality required by ISP Acumen Security has performed a detailed analysis between the two standard and put together an easily consumable white paper providing a high-level description of the differences between FIPS and ISO This will NOT be the case moving forward.

When we started Acumen a little over two years back we wanted our work to have real world impact. We truly believe in the value that certifications can bring to a product developer.
